After catering to corporate hospitals for over a decade, the doctors’ duo Dr Surendra Patil and Dr Ujwala Patil decided to commence their orthopedic multidisciplinary hospital. After coming across multiple cases and witnessing a crunch between the doctors and patients, they felt a need to start a space of their own where they could guide the patients in the right direction. Their willingness to go above and beyond for their patients led to the conceptualization of Polaris Healthcare.
Established in 2011, Polaris Healthcare – A top orthopedic multispeciality hospital in Pune, India brings together a team of highly knowledgeable doctors with a combined experience of over 100 years. Situated in a famous locality, this orthopedic hospital in Pune serves all your requirements under one roof.
Dr Patil expresses, “We believe in a holistic approach and add a ‘Human Touch’ to every treatment offered at Polaris Healthcare.”
Polaris Healthcare is a patient-oriented hospital in Pune where the team believe in offering world-class services and best-in-class technologies to deliver the best orthopedic treatment at an affordable cost. They put their best efforts into helping and caring for their patients, from pre to post-surgery, aiding in their faster recovery.
Dr Patil says, “Our medical experts are dedicated to healing you in the quickest and safest way possible by designing a proactive approach that would work best for you individually. We see every patient with a different eye because no individual is the same, and neither are their problems.”

Orthopedic Services Offered
Joint Replacement: If you face severe issues while performing your daily tasks like climbing stairs, walking, or age-related wear and tear in knee joints, then total knee replacement surgery is the best option. Dr Surendra Patil is a well-renowned joint replacement surgeon in Pune, Maharashtra, who has conducted several joint replacement surgeries in Pune with patients across the city.
Hip Replacement: Hip replacement surgeons sometimes use a ‘hybrid’ technique consisting of the cemented femur and an uncemented acetabular part. Sometimes, the surgeon also uses a special cement or glue to fix the new parts of the hip to the healthy, existing bone – this is referred to as a ‘cemented’ process. Full recovery post-surgery can take about 3-6 months, depending on several factors such as surgery type and the patient’s overall health.
Knee Replacement: A knee replacement is a surgical process wherein the damaged or worn knee is supplanted with artificial material. A knee is a hinge that provides movement where the thigh meets the lower leg. The process takes around 1 to 1.5 hours to perform, and recovery time differs from one patient to another.
Spine Surgery: Spondylosis refers to the gradual deterioration of the disc between the backbone vertebrae. Spondylosis occurs due to age-related wear and tear, just like osteoarthritis. This is common and affects 40-50% of people over 40. Here, the discs flatten, losing their average height. And the disc height usually separates the disc above from the one below. Doctors at Polaris Healthcare can help you eliminate this pain with an appropriate medical treatment depending on the severity of your pain.
Sports Injury: “At Polaris Healthcare, our orthopedic experts and surgeons are trained to identify and treat any muscular or skeletal injuries, and we have the best-in-class technologies to help in the diagnostic process. Our neurological team provides you with all-inclusive spinal and brain injury care. Around 10% of sports injuries are spine-related; hence, if you are experiencing back or neck injuries, you can contact our experts to find a cure for your agony,” says Dr Patil.
ACL – the anterior cruciate ligament is situated in the front of the knee and is the most commonly injured ligament. ACL is often stretched or torn during an abrupt twisting movement. Basketball and football are sports with a higher risk of ACL injuries.
PCL – the posterior cruciate ligament is situated at the back of the knee, and again it’s a commonly-injured ligament. PCL injury typically happens with abrupt and direct impacts, such as football tackles or car accidents.
MCL – the medial collateral ligament is situated inside the knee, and this one has injured more often than the LCL – lateral collateral ligament, which is located on the external knee. Here, the injuries are usually caused by a blow to the knee’s outer side, like when playing football or hockey.
Knee ligament repair is a solution for a complete knee ligament tear resulting from knee instability. People with torn knees might be unable to do everyday tasks involving twisting the knee. If medical treatments are inadequate, ligament repair surgery might be the answer.
Arthroscopy: Arthroscopy is a surgical process used by orthopedic surgeons to visualize and treat injuries or problems present inside a joint. While performing arthroscopic surgery, an orthopedic surgeon makes a tiny incision in the skin of the patient and then inserts pencil-sized instruments containing a small lens with a lighting system to magnify and illuminate the structures inside the joint.
Light gets transmitted by fiber optics to the end of the arthroscope, which is inserted inside the joint. By attaching a miniature camera to the arthroscope, the interior of the joint through this minimal incision gets visible to the surgeon, rather than the larger incision needed for open surgery. After being diagnosed with arthroscopic surgery, you can visit a surgeon to get the adequate treatment required with intensive medical care and support.
Physiotherapy: Traditional and robotic knee surgery are similar as they aim for the same thing – removing damaged tissue in your knee and replacing it with an artificial joint. However, the difference is that robotic knee surgery is done with assistance from a robotic arm. Robotic surgery improves precision, shorter recovery times, and better outcomes.
Robotic knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgery that reduces blood loss and helps surgeons have better vision on the screen, making it easier to perform surgery.
Dr Patil concludes, “At Polaris Healthcare, we leverage this gift of medical sciences in the best possible way to perform a growing number of complex surgeries quickly and efficiently.”
